We recognize that there is a lot of discussion regarding "panga style" hulls, and how each builder's design impacts ride, handling and efficiency. The Mojito design uses a generous beam and wide gunnel. We feel this improves the ride and comfort, but another benefit is having the space to provide flush mounted rod storage boxes in the gunnel. Below is a shot of the port side storage box being fitted into a 22' Mojito. Each box will provide lockable storage for four rods 8'+ long. The boxes are fabricated out of welded aluminum and have tubes on both ends to accept the rods.

Here's a good detail shot of the transom before the deck is installed. You can see the bilge discharge; hydraulic pump for the porta-bracket; fuel filter / water separator; bilge pump; baitwell discharge; livewell macerator and discharge hose; livewell aerator; freshwater pump; and raw water hose line. This custom boat was ordered with both a fresh water and a raw water washdown system. It also has a 31 gallon bait well built into the transom and a second live well with aerator built in below decks.

So the water on the decks collects in a bilge box and then discharged by a pump overboard?

Actually the deck is self bailing and drains out through scuppers in both aft corners. The bilge pump is intended to discharge any stray water that might make its way down into the bottom of the hull.  Below is a quick shot of the scupper in the port aft of a 22' Mojito, just beneath the freshwater washdown connection.

Very cool,

The reason i asked is because there are a couple manufacturers that use a collection box and bilge to disperse deck water... Im not a huge fan of that...
